A bag with almost all you need to make your own simple tablet woven band from Kaupang:
- started band (2 meters of warp gives about 1.5 meter of finished band) with:
- wool warp and weft in plant-dyed Mora Redgarn; choose available colour combination
- linen warp in Bocken’s linen thread 35/2, half-bleached
- 9 cardboard tablets
- simple oak batten
- booklet with patterns and instructions
The only things you need to add is something for fastening one end of the warp around your waist (e.g. a belt) and the other end around a fixed point.
Mora Redgarn is a thin but very strong two-ply yarn, very suitable for the warp. All wool yarn is plant-dyed by us in colours possible to make during the Viking age, and most often with plants used then. In some colours we have used iron sulphate which has the same effect as the iron oxide used during the Viking age. These yarns can sometimes become brittle. Please contact us if you have problems.
